Web Design Color Schemes with Natural Roots

A nicely done article on looking at your web pages with a different mind-set. Check out Boxes and Arrows: Natural Selections: Colors Found in Nature and Interface Design.

Typicallly B&A has some high brow articles, e.g. “Semiotics: A Primer for Designers”, stuff for people labled “information architects”, but now and then you find some down to earth, practical ones like this one on color.

Well illustrated, with real examples, I think it is time to comb through some landscape photos and look for some new color sets.
